It was a great weekend to enjoy the fall season and do a little baking, and that's exactly what I did with my family.

I love this time of year! There is just something about the cool crisp air that makes me want to bake and make it a family affair. We spent the day yesterday doing just that.

My daughter and I picked apples from the trees that our on our property in Littleton. It's just hilarious to see a two-year-old tugging and pulling with all her might to pluck an apple from a tree!

After we had gathered our apples, we decided to make a homemade apple crisp. So the first thing I do is google a recipe, but wouldn't you know, I don't have any oats in the house. So I did what I always do when I'm in a predicament... I called my mother!

Good old Mom has the answer for everything! She said she had an apple crisp recipe that didn't call for any oats. I loved her apple crisp growing up, so I got the recipe from her and Jersey and I attempted to make our own.

As I was peeling the apples, Jers had her spot on the counter, watching intently. Then as I was slicing up the apples, I swear she was eating them faster than I could get them cut up! Here's the recipe for homemade apple crisp my Mom shared with me.

1 TSP cinnamon

1/2 TSP salt

1/4 cup water

4 cups of apples

Mix those ingredients together and place in a greased 9 by 13 pan. Then you'll need:

1 1/2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2/3 cup melted margarine

Mix those incredients together, then crumble over the top of your apple mixture. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

We sampled our apple crisp for dessert last night, and it came out wonderfully! Enjoy!
